Dang, $309 ?!?!? DA's right, the mag hanger has to be compatible with your specific meter.
The K probe that comes with your meter is fine. You'll be using that for refrigerator calls. It's not made for high temp applications. That's why I suggested buying a high temp probe for oven calls.
You will attach this into the meter lead plugs using the white adapter. I do not see a separate K type connection. Also make sure you calibrate the probe using an ice water slurry mix to 32 degrees F, if your meter supports this. It should.
That does look like a pretty good starter set, but it probably will have some limitations compared to the higher cost meters. It will work just fine for you though.
I think this will work. I once saw it on a cartoon.
Or, on the other hand.....
Troubleshooting the appliance's complex electro-mechanical systems is the methodology in which one must, by using analyitical techniques and the process of elimination, determine the cause or causes of a specific failure. Rarely does this cause of a failure directly present itself for you to see.
To be better equipped to troubleshoot, you will need:
1.) To follow this: Safety first and foremost. Trust your instincts.
2.) Basic hand tools.
3.) A decent DVOM meter. Buy one. Borrow one. You need one.
4.) Last, but certainty not least, common sense. Most of us have it. Slow down and use it.
Now, let's have some fun!
Hope is the power that gives a person the confidence to step out and try.
Success is the maximum utilization of the ability you have.
It always seems impossible until it's done.
